    it gets even more depressing the further down the line you go:

    1. Dr. J
    2. Kidd
    3. Petrovic
    4. Marbury??
    5. Coleman??
    6. Anderson??
    8. Williams (Jayson)???

    :uhoh:

    What part of coaching success do you not understand?
    To be fair, I just looked up Rivers's career. Seems like he wasn't as good a player as I remember and may never been an all-star. Best season was 1986-87 when he averaged 12.8 points and 10.0 assists.

    Russell? He was player/coach for the Celtics and I think the won 1 or 2 chips with him in that role.

    Did KC Jones have a good career as a player?

    Phil Jackson, as much as I hate him, was a legit star and obviously a winning coach.

    Wait, what?
    Check out Bird's coaching record:
    Team Year G W L W–L% Finish PG PW PL PW–L% Result
    IND 1997–98 82 58 24 .707 2nd in Central 16 10 6 .625 Lost in Conf. Finals
    IND 1998–99 50 33 17 .660 1st in Central 13 9 4 .692 Lost in Conf. Finals
    IND 1999–00 82 56 26 .683 1st in Central 23 13 10 .565 Lost in NBA Finals
    Career 214 147 67 .687 52 32 20 .615

    Not bad at all.

    Really? I assumed he was a scrub-to-mediocre, like Riley.

    Edit: From Wiki -

    Jones had a lot of rings from his days on the Celtics, but career stats are unimpressive. Can't tell if he had any standout years and stats simply suffered from longevity.

    KC Jones has 8 championships as a player. using the Kobe's got 5 rings (near jordan better than lebron) logic KC Jones is a top 3 player of all time. :tounge:

    probably Billy Cunningham. He's won a championship and is a HOF level player. and the aforementioned KC Jones. Kidd actually has a chance to do that probably - I have a feeling he's going to be a great coach.

    edit: actually if you go down the list of players with the most championships you also get Tom Heinsohn who won 2 championships coaching the celtics. The celtics and now the Lakers and Spurs are basically coaching and GM mills these days though.

    Kind of had the opposite thought. That guy brings lulz, not rings.

    mcHale actually had a bit of "happy go lucky" in him too (its just that he also had larry bird on his team for the chips). Maybe its a match made in heaven... a core of harden, howard, maybe chris/cliff paul, lin, parsons is frightening.

    larry bird was a successful coach by almost any stretch -- no rings, but solid winning pct.
    Phil jackson is an amazing coach, but was basically a kurt rambis type of players. very limited skill set, played smart and hard (and threw LOTS of elbows).
